Prague, April 4th, 2024 – Conquest, a fund manager focusing on the infrastructures of the energy transition in Europe, through its fund Conquest Infrastructure SLP – Sustainable 2, has completed the concomitant acquisitions of two wind farms developed by Winda Energy, the Finnish renewable energy developer majority-owned by Czech BHM Renewables, part of the investment firm BHM group. The two onshore wind projects have a combined capacity of 182MW. Furthermore, the cooperation encompasses additional onshore wind projects totalling 500MW.

The transaction allows Conquest to expand its renewable power platform and its footprint in the Nordics market, while maintaining a well-balanced and diversified approach towards investments targeted to the energy transition in Europe.

The first two wind projects are at an advanced stage of development, with the first 182MW expected to reach ready-to-build by Q4 2024 and the rest expected to reach the same stage by Q4 2025. Winda Energy Oy will complete the development and manage the construction with expected start dates of commercial operations ranging from 2026 to 2028 for the portfolio.
